He has until 6pm on Thursday [29 October 2015] to reply.

The FA referred a coming together involving Richards and Swansea’s Federico Fernandez in the 30th minute which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video to the three former elite referee panel.

On this occasion, the panel did not find that either player had committed an act of violent conduct, therefore, no further action will be taken.
